The Mystery of the Dragon Prince
A fine game with variation in locations and challenges
November 20, 2011
I played the hour trial. I found many scenes unclear and hard to find the hidden objects. While I tried many things in many rooms, I had to consult the walk through much more that usual. The tasks were very fragmented and if not done in a specific order, it would muck up the flow of the game. I would recommend it for the more advanced game player but at my skill level - I found it frustrating.

So So game
I played the game completely through and finished the game. At first the graphics seemed a little grainy and if you don't have a good graphics card I think the colors would be a challenge for you.
For the challenge in the game, there are a few hidden object scenes and a few mini games. They were not much of a challenge for those who have played these games before, but for a new comer, they might be a little bit of a challenge.
The story line was okay but quite short for a game so I am glad I used a game credit instead of buying, other wise I would be a little disappointed. I like to know that I am getting a good "run for my money" as they old saying goes.
In my opinion this would be a good Saturday after noon game when there is nothing else to do and you just want to spend some time relaxing and doing not much of anything.

Could have been better
The storyline is interesting, and it starts well, but suddenly, it's like the developers didn't take the time to continue it. For example, you have to find runes for a spellbook, and the commentary is something like: "Now just use the book as mentioned." Except there never was an explanation why we needed the spell at all.
The minigames were very good, but again, there were no explanations with them, and sometimes I understood what I should have done only after seeing the result by punching the "skip" button. Except for one, I didn't think they were too difficult, and the maze was fun and totally doable.
The visuals were poor. Far too grainy and sometimes very much out of focus.
Finally, the game is very short. I finished it in about 2 hours.
It's too bad - if the storyline had been continued with the same care as in the beginning, and the graphics had been good, this would be a great game!

Not an exhilarating game
Rather a mediocre game. Quite a lot of HO?s of the usual type, some with a little twist but not an exciting twist, also a lot of objects hard to find. Not much new in the shape of puzzles one or two of which are, to my mind, unsolveable without the walkthrough. The maze towards the end is a joke. Unless you are very very lucky you will have to resort to the walkthrough. The hint button takes 3 minutes to recharge. Very slow. Storey nothing out of the ordinary. A so so game. Alright to purchase as a freebie but not for a full purchase price. This is certainly not one of my better choices.
